KLINGER Kempchen Corrugated
Corrugated gaskets are universally applicable sealing elements and often
an alternative to kammprofile and spiral wound gaskets in standard Class
150 and Class 300 piping flanges. They can also be used in custom
designed heat exchanger or pressure vessel girth flanges. Use in
applications where temperature limits exceed the capability of
compressed fiber gasket materials.
Properties of KLINGER Kempchen W1A-3/F1 Corrugated Metal Gaskets
For standard piping flanges, a portion of the gasket, outside of the
flange raised face is not corrugated as it acts only as a centering
ring. A metallic cleat or eyelet is applied to the inner edge of the
gasket to prevent direct contact between the internal media and the
gasket facing material. The eyelet also improves the leak tightness
characteristics of these gaskets.
